Chicaholic has seen its fair share of typical bar hotspots but it's always refreshing when they mix up their entertainment as well as they do their cocktails. Case in point: Thom Bar. We stopped by its new Cuban Sunday night party featuring live music by the lively Grupo Irék—they’ve played for everyone from Ashton to Oscar—who had people on the floor instead of clinging to the banquets. A mash up of classic Cuban tunes like Son, Cha-Cha, and Mambo combined with singer Chino Pons' slick footwork will have you feeling like you're in the islands in no time. Complete the summer feel with the bar's signature pineapple caipirinha or mojito served with bitters just like in Cuba! An authentic experience in a darkened NYC lounge? We'll drink to that!

Is this how those Patrick McMullan guys spend their down time at the studio? We're not sure what we're meant to feel when watching Billy Farrell dance ever-so-seductively (with his ASPCA umbrella from last night's ball!), but we know we can't look away. Happy Friday, darlings!

We’re not exactly sure what this is supposed to cure other than a burning desire to spend, spend, spend, but these gold pills designed by Tobias Wong certainly look chicer than your average ibuprofen. Filled with 24k gold leaf, the capsules claim to “increase self worth.” Perhaps…but at least these pills look much more appetizing than a $100 bill sandwich. THE DETAILS: Generate Design, $429

Ali Wise, qu'est-ce que c'est? The Dolce bombshell was mistaken several times for Tinsley Mortimer at last night's Museum Dance at the American Museum of Natural History. A new 'do? A Lilly look? Whatever you're doing, love, ça marche.
